Brazilian police fire water cannon at protesters

STORY: Brazil's Federal Highway Police (PRF) said protesters were blocking highways partially or fully in 156 locations as of Wednesday morning, down from around 190 the previous night. The blockades began Sunday night after polls closed in Brazil.

Although smaller than in previous days, the protests are still likely disrupting fuel distribution, meat production, food deliveries to supermarkets and shipments of grains to ports.

Police said 601 roadblocks had been cleared so far across the country, though roads remained blocked or partially blocked in 15 of Brazil's 26 states, most notably in Santa Catarina and Mato Grosso, where Bolsonaro has strong popular support.
